Jon worked for many years in the magazine publishing industry and while there, wore many hats. However, the developer hat fit best – and in 2009, when he was given the opportunity to learn Ruby on Rails, he enthusiastically took it. Mostly self-taught, he left in 2011 to join Hashrocket and improve those skills.
He's passionate about the web and couldn't think of a more interesting field to work in. When not reading technical books, blog posts and documentation, you'll find him reading comic books. He reads a lot.
